Every ornament is individual, hand crafted and beautifully detailed, and a fitting present for friends, neighbors and loved ones.

Do you want your ornament to mark a special occasion such as a wedding or new baby? Is this gift personal to an individual? If so then maybe an ornament of something they enjoy or one that reflects their profession such as ‘CPA’, ‘Nurse’, ‘Fireman’, ‘Ballerina’ or ‘Soccer Player’ will be the one that you want. Or is this ornament a gift to a whole family? Our family ornaments reflect all shapes and sizes of family and with the ability to have each one personalized with names or nicknames, they make an ideal gift.
